    ``(b) Terms and Conditions.--A master lease entered into under this 
section--

        of the selection process and to protect the interests of the 
        United States;
            ``(3) may provide a lease option to the United States, to

                entity; and
                    ``(C) that such non-Federal entity may not execute 
                any instrument or document creating or evidencing any 
                indebtedness unless such instrument or document 
                specifically disclaims any liability of the United 
                States under the instrument or document; and
            ``(7) shall include such other terms and conditions as the 
        Administrator considers appropriate.

master lease entered into under this chapter, the Administrator is 
authorized to convey the interest of the United States in the property 
covered by the master lease to the non-Federal entity by sale or 
exchange, if the Administrator first determines in writing that such 
conveyance is in the interests of the United States;
    ``(b) Other Authorities Not Affected.--The authority to enter into 
a master lease under this chapter shall be in addition to, and not in 
lieu of, any other authorities of the Administrator to convey interests 
in real property by lease, sale, or exchange.
    ``(c) Obligations To Make Payments.-- Any obligation to make 
payments by the Administrator for the use of space, goods or services

necessary funds have been made available to the Administrator, in 
advance, in an annual appropriations Act.

chapter shall not be subject to--

section 7101, the Administrator of General Services shall transmit to 
the appropriate Committees of Congress a report on the proposed
